When Basic Needs are Lacking

20130430-081003.jpg

WHEN SOME BASIC NEED IS LACKING– time, energy, money–consider yourself blessed. Your very lack is an opportunity to latch onto Me in unashamed dependence. When you begin a day with inadequate resources, you must concentrate your efforts on the present moment . This is where you were meant to live–in the present; it is the place where I always await you. Awareness of your inadequacy is a rich blessing, training you to rely whole-hardheartedly on Me.

The truth is that self-sufficiency is a myth perpetuated by pride and temporary success. Health and wealth can disappear instantly, as can life itself. Rejoice in your insufficiency, knowing that My power is made perfect in weakness.

James 1:2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trial

2 Corinthians 12:9 9 And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me

Weather The Storm

Ever been in a situation where your family turned their back on you, your so called friends are talking about you folks lying on you bringing up your past and you feel like you’re alone and you feel Battered, Bruised? but God is saying;

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, and I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10.

You bounce back you’re determined to win this fight and you begin to rejoice! In the Lord because the fire in you that has always been but because of bondage you couldn’t see it has ignited, it’s just like fire! Shut up in your bones and as you look at all you’ve been through you’re no longer inferior of the enemy, of your past or people who have put you down and said you would never be nothing nor amount to anything. Know who you are as a human being as a person and as a whole.You realize you could’ve been dead but you’re still here by God’s “Grace “and “Mercy” and every negative thing that was ever done and spoken in your life rather it’s drug addiction, prostitution, in imprisonment, homeless, lost everything, abused physically and mentally and raped or molested. It has been defeated In the name of Jesus and you know without a doubt there is a purpose for your life and what hasn’t killed you made you strong. You speak life and not death and you know without a doubt God delivered you out of your situation in your right frame of mind then my brothers,sisters you need to lift your hands to heaven and take 30 seconds or more and give God the most high! Praise! and just worship He’s so worthy.

Evangelist Angela Weir

I just wanted to share this it blessed me!

Thankfulness

20130429-151605.jpg

LET ME TEACH YOU THANKFULNESS. Begin by acknowledging that everything–all your possessions and all that you are–belongs to Me. The dawning of each new day is a gift from Me, not to be taken for granted. The earth is vibrantly alive with My blessings, giving vivid testimony to My Presence. If you slow down your pace of life, you can find Me anywhere.

Some of My most precious children have been laid aside in sick beds or shut away in prisons. Others have voluntarily learned the discipline of spending time alone with Me. the secret of being thankful is learning to see every thing from My world is your classroom. My Word is a lamp to your feet and a light for your path.

Hebrews 12:28-29 28 Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; 29 for our God is a consuming fire
Psalm 119:103 How sweet are Your words to my taste!
Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Bondage Is Slavery

20130429-081340.jpg
We all in some kind of way have experienced being in bondage to something, when we come to know God’s love for us, then we will realize there is nothing that we have to be in bondage to. For bondage is being a slave to what ever you deem to be to hard to let go, or say no to. I can think of several things that may have been hard for many to walk away from or to say no to, when your carnal minded its so easy to be lured away from the love of Spiritual things. The lust of the flesh is enemy to the very thought of Spiritual thoughts and action. The flesh holds no good things, to be carnal minded is to be spiritually dead! My brother’s and sister’s when we except Christ as Lord of our lives, we are now in covenant with Jesus and that means we are now been given the same spiritual keys to fight off everything that at one time held us in bondage!! Stop taking what the enemy dishes out, use your spiritual authority, speak the Word.. All spiritual gifts have been given to us, Abba Father has given us all rights to Him and He left the Holy Spirit and His job is to lead and guide us into all TRUTH. The father of lies has been defeated in our lives, when you don’t use your weapons, you will find your self reverting back to your ways that caused you to seek out a Savior. Just remember that:
Being confined to bondage is a reality from which some may never allow themselves to break free. Just hearing that you are free is only part of the equation. Walking out the truth of your freedom is the authentic and actual application of that knowledge. You’ve been made free by Me. Allow the bands of the self-imposed yoke under which you’ve placed yourself to be unshackled. Let go. Allow Me to usher you from the dark and dreary dungeon where you’ve unduly placed yourself. I am the bondage breaker and I’ve set you free.

John 8:36 (NLT) “So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.”

I Am The Way

20130429-081053.jpg

I am the way, the truth and the life and I have the way, the truth and the life. You can find your way by trusting in My way. I know each step you are to take. Just start and keep focusing on Me. With your focus on Me, if you take a wrong turn, I will let you know and you can turn to the truth. Precious, I know your heart and your thoughts and I always want the best for you, even better than you want for yourself.

John 14:5-6 (NKJV) “Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Bev Robinson

I Am Taking Care Of You

20130428-231254.jpg
I AM TAKING CARE OF YOU. Trust Me at all times. Trust Me in all times. Trust Me in all circumstances. Trust Me with all your heart. When you are weary and every thing seems to be going wrong, you can still utter these four words: ” I trust You, Jesus .” By doing so, you release matters into My control, and you fall back into the security of My everlasting arms.

Before you arise from your bed in the morning. I have already arranged the events of your day. Every day provides many opportunities for you to learn My ways and grow closer to Me. Signs of My Presence brighten even the dullest day when you have eyes that really see. Search for Me as for hidden treasure.
I will be found by you.

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.

Deuteronomy 33:27 “The eternal God is a dwelling place,
And underneath are the everlasting arms;
And He drove out the enemy from before you,
And said, ‘Destroy!’

Jeremiah 29:13-14 You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’

Come To Me

20130428-230904.jpg

COME TO ME with empty hands and an open heart, ready to receive abundant blessings. I know the depth and breadth of you neediness. Your life-path has been difficult, draining you of strength. Come to Me for nurture. Let Me fill you up with My Presence: I in you, and you in Me.

My power flows most freely into weak ones aware of their need for Me. Faltering steps of dependence are not lack of faith: they are links to My Presence.

John 17:20-23
20 “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.
22 The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; 23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.

Isaiah 40:29-31 29 He gives strength to the weary,
And to him who lacks might He increases power.
30 Though youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
31 Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.

As You Look

20130428-230542.jpg

AS YOU LOOK into the day that stretches out before you, you see many choice-points along the way. The myriad possibilities these choices present can confuse you. Draw your mind back to the threshold of this day, where I stand beside you, lovingly preparing you for what is ahead.

You must make your choices one at a time, since each is contingent upon the decision that precedes it. Instead of trying to create a mental map of your path through this day, focus on My loving Presence with you. I will equip you as you go , so that you can handle whatever comes your way. Trust Me to supply what you need when you need it.

Lamentations 3;24-26 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I have hope in Him.”
25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the person who seeks Him.
26 It is good that he waits silently
For the salvation of the Lord.
